Today we are very happy to be sharing images from the ladies behind Getyourkickson (again!). It is a home tour in the Netherlands from the founder of Designlemonade. Jessica Peters' home has a very homely and comfortable vibe with its soft colors and wooden furniture. I like how the space is not overly perfect, like the metal drawers. I love how they are not all of the same color and the ones that havent been painted white show that they have been used previously.
One interior design tip I have picked up from Jessica's beautiful abode is playing with new and old pieces. Each room of her house has one piece that looks like it has a history (like the wooden table in her bathroom) which is what gives her home that comfy, cosy vibe. A place you would really want to live in rather than just like a picture of.
I think my favorite piece is still the cabinet with the metal drawers. I love how imperfect the entire piece is. Ironically, it is perfect paired with the pastel green lamp and all the cute little knick knacks.
Don't you just want to go on the hunt for some good vintage pieces at a flea market or thrift store?It's amazing how one piece of furniture can change an entire space. ~ Zara S.

Do you remember the post 'Get Your Kicks on' ... well today Anke and Kim are showing us this housetour shot in the interesting home of Dutch designer, Annebet Philips. Not only does A have the most quaint home, her works fit right into that space. We love how her designs have literally found their homes, in her home!
As a Delft University of Technology student a few years ago, Annebet took the time to pursue her own design projects and set up her studio in 2012. Her works are recognizable by their bold shapes and graphic features like the outlines on her My couch, my canvas. Another one of my favorite works of hers is the Knotted lamp!
Firstly, it is so unusual it wouldn't strike you that it was a lamp at first glance. Also, its exaggerated size gives me a sense of fantasy and imagination.
Annebet has shown us how her works have come alive in her home. The red and black accents in her pieces create a visual 'pop' in the space. They remind me of something out of an illustration, the graphic effect and the lines in her designs look like they have been drawn into the space itself. Simple yet eye-catching and wonderfully captured by the ladies from Get Your Kicks On!

I have the pleasure of working with Véronique Senorans for a long time over at Bloesem Kids ... Véronique creates these wonderful craft projects and although she currently lives in Africa with her family she and her husband are still the proud owners of this gorgeous apartment in Antwerp.
Last week I shared the girls' bedroom on BKids but today an impression of the livingroom. The apartement has still all it's orginal details from 1972 like the tiled wall behind the tv and the round ligts on the ceiling ... Véronique only renovated the kitchen and bathroom. I am loving this style. What about you?
